Religion, Politics and Cults in East Africa is the first major, original, and extensive research-based study of the apocalyptic and doomsday Catholic Marian Movement and its Benedictine monastic moral and religious practices, including vows of poverty, celibacy, obedience, daily contemplation in silence, and hard work. The Marian Movement is presented within the cultural, historical, political, and religious context of the East African Revival Movement, the Anglican Balokole Movement, Alice Lakwena’s Holy Spirit Movement, Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), and other religio-political liberation movements, including the Maji Maji, the Mau Mau, and Nyabingi Liberation Movement. The Marian Movement was locally known as «Abanyabugoto» and «The Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God». It began in 1989 as a Catholic women’s Marian devotional and moral reformation movement, founded and headed by Keledonia Mwerinde. Faced with African cultural patriarchy and male-dominated Catholic Church hierarchy, Mwerinde recruited Joseph Kibwetere and the Rev. Fr. Dominic Kataribabo to serve as the public face of the Marian Movement. In response to Catholic hierarchy’s opposition and persecution, Fr. Kataribabo designed a theology of ritual sacrifice, atonement, and martyrdoms for the devout Marian Catholics, who were devotees of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He martyred the Marian devotees in March 2000, in order to transform them into Mary’s saints, and to liberate their souls and send them to heaven, where they would instantly attain eternal life, lasting peace, and happiness.

About the Author:

The Author: Emmanuel K. Twesigye is a distinguished senior Professor of Religion and Ethics. He holds the endowed chairs of Aden S. and Mollie Wollam Benedicts Professor of Christian Studies and Sharp-Davis-Trimble Professor of Religion at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, where he is also the former Chair of the Department of Religion. He has served as an NEH fellow at Princeton University and was a fellow at Harvard University. Originally from Uganda, Twesigye was the Chairman of Religious Studies at Kyambogo University, where he also served as the Anglican University Chaplain, and a part-time lecturer of African history at Makerere University Kampala. Twesigye received an M.A. in cultural anthropology from Wheaton College, an S.T.M. from University of the South, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy and religion from Vanderbilt University. He has also published many major scholarly books and articles, which include Religion and Ethics for a New Age (2001); Mission Theology and Partnerships: A Handbook (1999); and African Religion, Philosophy, Christianity in Logos-Christ: Common Grounds Revisited (Lang, 1996). Twesigye has also been the editor of The Ohio Academy Religion Papers and Zumari Journal.

Review:

«Emmanuel Twesigye returns home to Uganda to examine the rise of seemingly perplexing Christian communities, such as the Lord’s Resistance Army, in which nearly a thousand adherents met with fiery deaths. In contrast to the superficial media reports that reinforce colonial mindsets of the exotic, irrational African, Twesigye’s thorough ethnographic field research tells another story. Like people everywhere, the Ugandans drawn to messianic leadership were responding to years of uncertainty brought about by civil war and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. ‘Religion, Politics and Cults in East Africa’ is a courageous, compassionate, and illuminating study of humans responding to chaos.» (Mary Howard, Ohio Wesleyan University)
